Two pitchers, same birthday, but far apart years.
The now 31-year-old joined the Braves on December 16th 2013 as a free agent after six seasons with the Chicago White Sox. Before then, he was a part of the Philadelphia Phillies organization – drafted in 2001 by the Phillies in the 1st round, 4th overall pick and pitched three seasons in the MLB with the Phils.
In 10 career MLB seasons, Floyd has a 70-70 record with a 4.48 ERA.
Teheran enters his 23-year-old season as a pivotal pitcher in the Braves rotation. In 2013, Teheran began to show a glimpse of the potential everyone has spoke of for years. In 30 starts, he went 14-8 with a 3.20 ERA and 1.174 WHIP. He had 170 strikeouts in 185.2 innings pitched while only allowing 45 walks.
So without further ado, Happy Birthday Gavin Floyd and Julio Teheran!
